Lovely service, good selection, excellent panforte! Nice outside seating overlooking the valley and under the pine tress.

A nice place to taste wine and have a small meal. We enjoyed sharing the Tuscan pasta and sauce and a bruchetta sample platter. Typical tomato, olive oil, truffle spread, and a liver spread. Two glasses of wine and a bottle of water later it was time to explore the city. They have a nice terrace to sit and eat if the weather cooperates. Today it was cold and windy.

We visited La Fortezza on various occasions - lunch outside on the terrace, with a great view, included local meats, cheese and pates, as well as a tasting of brunello wines; morning coffee, early evening drinks, etc. Service was always friendly and efficient. Food and drinks of a high standard. Setting is attractive and comfortable.

My husband and I stopped here for a rest while the rest of our group went up to Montalcino.

Thank goodness we were allowed to rest and were not hurried to leave, as we were both exhausted.

We had coffee (€1.50), tea (€2.00) and a variety of sweet pastries. Total bill was only €9- what a deal for a quiet respite.

Only one restroom - unisex of course. Small price to pay

Would return and absolutely recommend
